A personalized pet memorial is the most sincere way to honor and commemorate your best friend when their time here on earth has passed. Whether you have a beloved Fido or Scruffy of your own, there is no doubt about it – people love their pets. People cherish their pets and consider them members of their family. Instead of kennels, pet owners opt for doggy daycares which provide the best socialization, playtime, and even scheduled naps and meals. You can now take your pet to a doggy day spa and even purchase designer clothing for them. As of 2020, the pet industry as a whole amassed $99.3 billion dollars and is continuing to grow. But what about personalized pet memorials?
Where the Pet Memorial Industry Falls Short
With so many options for pets available, the lack of memorialization options for our furry friends who have left the earth is surprising. Many vet clinics offer cremation services, but for the most part, owners aren’t given many other options for dealing with the loss of a beloved companion.
Offering personalized pet memorial products is a great way to capture part of this booming industry. Pet owners want to memorialize their pets, just as they would memorialize a family member. According to CANA, The pet memorialization market is one of the fastest-growing deathcare markets in the United States and Canada.
This rising trend in pet afterlife care opens up a whole new market for businesses that have the equipment to offer personalized and customized items.

Personalized Pet Products
In addition to the under-saturated market of pet memorialization, the personalized pet product industry is another market segment that is worth mentioning. There are plenty of ways to capitalize on personalized gifts and gear for living pets as well! Pet owners are more willing to spend more money on personalized food bowls, tags, toy boxes, collars, etc. than the generic versions. It’s easy to spend money on your family and sometimes a good pet is better than family.
Why Offer Personalized Pet Memorials? The real question is, why not? The pet product industry is lacking memorial options. There is a market there and aren’t many businesses providing for it.
